Tata Motors has already unveiled its most-awaited Tata Harrier SUV and has also made its public debut in Gurgaon. The upcoming Harrier SUV will soon be launched in January 2019. The exact Tata Harrier launch date is not confirmed yet, but when launched, it will give a challenge to the Mahindra XUV500, Jeep compass and, to some extent, Hyundai Creta too, as the Tata Harrier on-road price in India is expected between Rs. 16 to 21 lakh. An on-paper comparison will do a bit of justice as to which model is better with its package.

Dimensions

The Tata Harrier 2019 is based on the Omega Arc platform and the same platform is also shared with the Discovery Sport. That means that this 5-seater Tata SUV gets a wheelbase of 2,741 mm, and even the length and width are same as the Discovery Sport. Nonetheless, it is also bigger to its other counterparts but sits lower than the Mahindra XUV500.

Mahindra XUV500 is a 7-seater offering and still is a bit smaller than the Tata Harrier, where the length of the XUV500 is 4585 mm (just 13 mm lesser than that of the Harrier), wheelbase is lesser by 41 mm, the width is narrower by 4 mm, but sits taller than the Harrier by 71 mm.

Jeep Compass, on the other hand, is smaller, and dimensionally, the Harrier is 203 mm longer, 76 mm wider and 74 mm taller, and its wheelbase is 105 mm longer too.

Engine

Coming to the Tata Harrier specifications, it is offered with a diesel engine option only. It gets a 2.0-litre diesel engine, the same that also serves on the Jeep Compass, but at a lower state of tune. The latter makes 138 bhp of power with 350 Nm of torque, while the former makes 171 bhp with same torque figure. However, the Compass is also offered with a 1.4-litre petrol engine that makes 161 bhp of power with 250 Nm of torque. Coming to Mahindra XUV500, it gets the biggest engine here – 2.2-litre engine both on petrol and diesel variants, but the power figures are smaller than the Compass. The XUV500 produces 140 bhp of power for the petrol unit and 155 bhp for the diesel but comes big on the torque figures 320 Nm for the petrol and 360 Nm for the diesel.

The Hyundai Creta features a smaller engine and we have already pointed out earlier as to why we are comparing this model to the Tata Harrier. The Creta is offered with three engine options – one petrol and two diesel options. The petrol is a 1.6-litre engine that generates 121 bhp with 151 Nm and the 1.4-litre diesel engine makes 89 bhp and a 1.6-litre engine that develops 126 bhp with 260 Nm. It is simple that the Compass comes packed with a powerful engine compared to its counterparts.

Speaking of the transmission system, Tata offers only a 6-speed manual gearbox on the model, whereas the Mahindra XUV500 features a 6-speed automatic on the petrol, whereas the diesel variants are offered with a choice of either a 6-speed manual or 6-speed automatic gearbox. The Jeep Compass gets a 6-speed manual and 7-speed automatic offering for the petrol variants, and a 6-speed manual for the diesel version. Here, it is only Hyundai Creta, which is offered with 6-speed manual and 6-speed automatic on both fuel options.

Cabin and Features

As the Tata Harrier exterior is huge, it translates good space for the passengers. Speaking of the Tata Harrier interiors, it comes packed with a slew of features, where taking the safety kit into account, most of these features are offered on its rivals as well, but it also gets some extra features like the hill-descent control and Isofix child-seat mounts on the Harrier top model when compared to the Compass and Creta. But it misses out on the sunroof, which is offered on the Creta and XUV500, and the Compass gets a panoramic sunroof. Tata Harrier is the only model to be offered with a brake-assist as standard and traction control feature is available with the Harrier, XUV500 and Compass. Another thing that is missing out from the Harrier is the all four disc brake, which is offered on Compass and XUV500; even the Hyundai Creta features front disc brakes.

The Harrier boasts of features once you step inside and compared to its competitors, it comes with 8.8-inch touchscreen infotainment with 8 speakers and an amplifier that makes it big with the offering. But the Harrier and the Compass miss the navigation setup, which is available on the XUV500 and Creta. Nonetheless, the Creta does miss out on some features like the rain-sensing wipers, automatic headlamps and cooled storage space. While all the models here get cruise control, one may think on why Jeep Compass is not packed with it!

Speaking of the off-road capability, here Jeep Compass takes everything in its hand as it is available with a four-wheel drive option as well and a terrain selection mode. On the contrary, the XUV500 also comes with AWD as an optional set-up, while the Harrier and Creta are offered with front two-wheel only; however, the Harrier also comes packed with terrain response system same as seen on the Compass and it can do some mild patches off road.

Prices

Coming to the pricing, the Tata Harrier on-road price in India is expected to fall between Rs. 16 to 21 lakh. Based on this, it simply gives a challenge to Creta and XUV500, whereas the Compass makes a huge margin on its top variant. Tata Harrier costs more than the Hyundai Creta when it comes to some features such as the sunroof and wireless charging, but that is given it is big in size and also spacious on the inside. But that said, the Tata Harrier price in India has also tapped to this range due to some compensation, which is acceptable. Also, the Tata Harrier images prove that its looks are something that is irresistible to roll your eyes off.
